Hello talking fight fans all around the world, welcome to another exciting episode of knuckle up with that idiot beside me, mike [, Laughter, ] thursday, welcome, yes, another wonderful episode of knuckle up with mike or f4 on thursday and grand voice.
How you doing good! Thank you.
I’M a little energetic awaiting our mysterious profile, guest, our knockout artist.
On a thursday.
It will be hamza shiraz.
Ah hamza, shiraz, yeah um, honestly, not bad.
He must be, he must be undefeated.
He must have a majority of his wins by knockout uh.
He must have under 20 fights, but where the heck’s he from united kingdom, he is actually from ilford, london, united kingdom.
Yes, boxing gym, yes, good, good, good, good, [, Laughter, ], no, so 21 years old, 12 wins eight knockouts, no losses! Last fight, you fought uh.
Guido nicholas pito on the uh november, 28th.
That’S the last time we’ve seen this guy get in the ring um.
This gentleman uh shiraz turned pro a professional at 27 in 2017 um signing a deal with frank, warren’s, queens mary promotions on his 18th birthday uh.
He made his pro debut on the 16th of september 2017 on the undercard of the billy, joe saunders willie monroe jr world title fight uh at the cooper box arena in london uh he defeated.
He defeated for his first fight a 35 year old, journeyman dwayne green, with a technical knockout in the second round uh for his first victory uh by the beginning of 2019.
He was already supporting a 6-0 record um yeah and he’s just been he’s just been dominating.
Ever since so we got this kid out of queensbury, you know i you know, i can’t i couldn’t be so one-sided.
I couldn’t just go over that side of the world and you know look at the irish not and not check out the english.
You know i.
I i had to go to the uk.
I had to find somebody from the uk uh yo shiraz he’s an unbeaten super welter prospect uh, you know he’s been framed.
He’S he’s been signed to frank uh, frank warren’s, queensbury promotions.
Uh, you know he’s a bright young talent uh.
He comes from a boxing family uh.
You know boxing was in his tradition, uh.
He was inspired by the time he was eight years old to pick up, gloves and start joining the sport and uh he did.
He became um, he was an eight-time national champion and uh.
You know his his record really speaks for it.
You know 12, 12-0, eight knockouts and uh.
You know the kids, the kids gon na be definitely gon na, be a force to be reckoned with in the future uh.
He already holds a belt under his uh under his waist he’s already the wbo european super welter, title holder and uh.
You know we’re gon na see big things from this kid man and he’s young and he’s young.
We just got to get him some uh, some bigger compensation.
I believe uh he’s rated he’s rated sixth right now at uh out of 85 in his weight class.
In the united king in the united kingdom and uh in his weight class he’s 49th ranked 49th out of 100 six one thousand six hundred thirty four people, so you know he’s got some he’s got ta get some other names under his belt.
Man start bringing himself up he’s already got a world title on his way.
We’Ll definitely see him in the future.
Fighting for world titles, guys hazmat shiraz, aka also known as muhammad.
That’S that’s the guy we’re talking about today.
Man, that’s who we’re featuring uh trust me check out this guy’s fight, he’s very exciting.
To watch he’s got good power he’s you know, he’s got some height to him.
He’S able to close that gap.
You know he’s just one of those good fighters.
You know 6-1 6-1, as as a super welter.
You know that’s pretty tall in a super welterweight division uh.
You know he uses that reach to his advantage.
Definitely a very technical guy to watch.
You know 21 still young still a little green behind the ears when it comes to.
You know, ring experience, and you know world competition.
I believe he’s only he’s.
Only really fought he’s only really fought in the uk.
Uh he’s had no fights anywhere else on any other soil, so we have yet to see him really face.
True super welter competition, but in the meantime this kid is wearing a belt.
So we are going to see this guy in some super welder um matches coming up in the future, but i would like to see him face some guys from you know somewhere else in the world other than just the uk, which will truly put him up to You know put him up to the test and see if he really is this uh, this undefeated phenom that people talk about while you were poking around while you’re poking around find this uh great undiscovered talent.
What else did you find out about queensbury boxing or this company he signed to what else cause that’s the first time i’ve heard of him they’ve actually been around for quite a while, i believe um i just i didn’t really.
I didn’t really dive too deep into queensberry promotions, because i know i’ve heard about them a lot, i’m not too sure how long the company’s been around, but there’s there always seem to be attached to something.
That’S going on over the uk anytime that i’ve watched some of the some of the events that go on over there.
You always talk.
You always hear them talking about queensberry promotions, so i believe they’re a pretty big, pretty big organization over there.
I know frank warren’s been around the game a long time, so i believe his his promotion company has been around you know just as long so um.
Definitely that’s a question that i will answer for you one day.
Usually i’m looking at what the fighter is doing.
Not really what the promotional companies doing, but you know maybe we’ll do a segment on all promotional companies, but yes, uh queensberry they’ve been around for a long time, man.
I know that much uh, frank warren, you know he’s a veteran in the game.
He’S doing the same thing just on a smaller level that you know bob arum is doing over here in america and uh we’ll do it over there in america, not here because we’re canadian, let’s say, let’s make that right, but uh yeah.
I know he’s doing big things, he’s signing the right people, you know and britain’s got a huge talent pool man.
We all know that yeah.
So i’m just wondering if they have uh the stature of a golden boy.
The stature of bob aaron’s top rank uh stature of some of these other bigger, shall we say, promotion companies on this side of the pond, i’m curious to know if britain, given the fact that it’s got an awful lack of uh, really good heavyweights right now, um, You know whether or not they are uh matching toe-to-toe on the promotional side of things too.
They you know what they they got ta be they got ta be honestly uh they’ve been around, they think well, yeah they’ve been around a long time.
Actually, i believe, it’s uh well frank.
Warren has promoted and managed with world champions and top-ranked fighters, including you know, all the big, wigs and uh.
You know it’s he’s a boxing manager and promoter and it’s and it’s his it’s his baby.
So you know it must be a really big thing over in that uh over on that side of the world.
Definitely not maybe not as as big as the conglomerates over here that we were used to knowing the dealing with you know, like you know, uh match room and top ranking.
You know golden boy promotions, you know showtime, although all those kind of things might not be as big as that, but you know i i believe i believe it was one that was started a way back when you know when uh, when they were promoting guys uh By newspapers, it’s probably how long it goes back to be honest, uh yeah! No, definitely it’s something that i’m gon na look into, because it’s something i wan na know now: you’ve piqued my interest, so definitely fight fans i’ll, let you know all about it, we’ll find out about queensberry promotions and we’ll let you know more about it.
That’S for sure, all right tomorrow, female friday, guys female friday i’ll have a good one for you.
